Skin 101 Opens in Shangri-La Mall + Review
Before hitting the Great Barrier Reef, I had to get rid of some hair and had it done at Skin 101. They have a newly opened branch at Shangri-La Mall and it's one of the most posh clinics I have seen; I'll take you around!
Skin 101 was established in 2004 and has become a household name for all things derma beauty; they have 10 stores around Metro Manila and boasts of an impressive celebrity clientele such as Yassi Pressman and Andre Paras.
The new branch is as modern and eclectic as it can get; French and Asian decor were fused to create a chic impression and colors are predominantly cool, specifically in mint and white with touches of blue and orange for a sense of relaxation. The ambiance was peaceful and warm, perfect enough for me to ready myself for my underarm laser hair removal treatment.
The machine used for my underarm laser hair removal is Alma, one of the most sophisticated machines used in laser treatments in the derma industry.
How did my treatment go?
First, a doctor on duty approached me and interviewed me about my past experiences with laser and took the necessary precautions by asking if I was taking any medicine or have any existing skin or health problems. After the consultation, we then proceeded to the treatment. It's been a while since I had a laser so I was expecting that there will be some form of pain, but to my amazement, there was very, very little pain involved. Amazing! I could even categorize my first sesh as painless! There were little pricks here and there, but they were very, very tolerable. The whole session lasted for 15 minutes.
The staff were really friendly and overall, I had a wonderful time. Props to them for being generous with the cold gel and for keeping my mind off the treatment by chatting up with me when needed - that helped minimize the pain!
I'll be taking the rest of my underarm laser treatments here. Will be posting an update on my progress after my first three treatments.
